Education support for underprivileged students stressed


RAJSHAHI, Sept 25, 2018 (BSS) – With a view to build an educated and
prosperous nation, speakers here underscored the need for ensuring the right
to education for the poor and underprivileged communities.

They viewed that access to education for all is an urgent need for
overall development of the country. Collective efforts of all government and
non-government organizations concerned are of essence in this regard.

Beside, the government, rich people of the society and financial
institutions should come forward for providing education support to the
underprivileged students.

The observation came at a bank-chaque giving ceremony organised by
Rajshahi Zila Parishad at its office in the city yesterday.

On the occasion, 357 underprivileged meritorious students from different
educational institutions in the district were given financial support worth
Taka 4.60 lakh.

Zila Parishad Chairman Muhammad Ali Sarker attended the cheques
distribution ceremony as chief guest. Chief Executive Officer Ahsan Habib,
Editor of Daily Sonali Sangbad Liakat Ali and ZP Council Member Abdul Mannan
were present on the occasion.

Muhammad Ali Sarker urged all concerned to come forward to protect the
rights of the underprivileged children.

Terming the children as the future power of the nation, he called for
ensuring equal rights for flourishing of their latent talent.

Mr Sarker said the present government has taken many need-based steps
for the welfare of the distressed and underprivileged students.
